v.stevenson - fromways [slapmp3_017]
Music is a type of travel. And as you travel, the soundscape always exist in constant flux. A bird, a tree, a truck, the changing distance of objects from a car window play their symphony and the driver and passenger(s) slip in and out of awareness of their melody. Objects and buildings and people and views one only peripherally notices for a very short time, never to encounter again. v.stevenson's "fromways" is influenced by this wrenching experience of "passing through," but its as if each perceptible turn of the head is recorded and examined.
Run time 10:00
It's a ten-minute piece separated into five sections each titled after towns the author "passed through" on a summer drive.
